The COVID-19 pandemic has irreversibly affected and changed the procedures necessary to ensure continued mitigation of infectious disease control, says the Association of Dental Support Organizations.
The Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO), its members, and supported dental practices released a statement thanking and applauding Northeast Delta Dental, Delta Dental of Connecticut, Delta Dental of New Jersey, Principal, Unum, and United Concordia for their recognition and appreciation of the added burden the increased use of personal protective equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused dental offices, by providing reimbursement for these services.
In a press release the ADSO added:
“Your acknowledgment that the COVID-19 pandemic has irreversibly affected and changed the procedures necessary to ensure continued mitigation of infectious diseases to both patients and employees in a dental setting, that comes with the additional cost that needs to be addressed, is laudable.”
The ADSO members and their supported dental practices will continue to provide the safest possible dental visit to the patients they serve.
